Actress Traci Bingham has joined her fellow Baywatch castmate Pamela Anderson in the animal rights crusade against fast food giant KFC.

Bingham, who has recently finished starring in British reality TV show Celebrity Big Brother, has written a letter in conjunction with animal rights campaigners People For The Ethical Treatment Of Animals (PETA), asking KFC to improve their treatment of chickens.

In a letter to David Fitzjohn, managing director of KFC's UK parent company Yum! International, she writes, "KFC should adopt the recommendations of PETA and its own animal welfare advisers. No animals should have to suffer, whether they're cats or dogs or chickens."

In 2002, Bingham stopped traffic in Berlin, Germany, by posing in a lettuce bikini in a PETA anti-fur campaign.
